Lambeth & Southwark Housing Association (LSHA) is a small community-based housing association providing over 300 affordable homes and services in the south london boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham.
We are proud of our heritage dating back to 1927 and remain committed to placing our residents at the heart of everything we do. But we also have our eye firmly on the future. Our ambition remains to continue to develop our services and grow our resident offer. We have an exciting new development in the pipeline which supports our growth aspiration with the provision of 30 modular airspace flats in Bermondsey.
Our current Chair will be stepping down in early 2021 and we are now looking to appoint to this position. In addition, we are also seeking two additional Board Members who will complement the existing skills of our experienced Board and share the commitment, passion and ambition to drive our organisation forward.
All the roles require leadership qualities, strategic thinking skills and a good appreciation of what constitutes good governance, and we are particularly interested in Board Member applicants who can bring senior level skills in finance or asset management.
We welcome applicants from all sectors as long as you can demonstrate an understanding of our business and the associated risks and have a proactive and enthusiastic approach, coupled with the time and commitment to make a full and effective contribution to the Board.
Ideally candidates interested in the Chair role will be able to draw upon previous non-executive Board experience, but for the other posts this may well be your first non-executive role, in which case you will be supported and trained to enable you to develop, contribute and grow with the association.
There are 6 Board meetings plus a Board Away Day each year held in Kennington, London.

The Closing date for applications is Tuesday 28th July 2020 at 10am.
